PCB Drilling and Routing
The Westwind product line has delivered state-of-the-art PCB drilling and routing spindles for over 40 years. Ideally suited for the high speeds required of drilling extremely small holes in PCB materials, typically down to 0.1mm diameter, while still delivering sufficient power at low speeds to drill 6.3mm tooling holes. Smooth, precise rotation ensures maximum tool life and excellent hole quality. Very low runout ensures accurate hole placement. Integrated non-contact axial and radial air bearings guarantee long service life with minimal maintenance and very low heat generation. Highly reliable water-cooled AC induction motors are integrated into every spindle. Mature design based on extensive experience and expertise, accompanied with state-of-the-art manufacturing, enables reliable operation and long product life.
Core benefits of the product range:
- Non-contact air bearing technology enables speeds up to 285,000 RPM
- Low runout for increased accuracy
- High quality ensures reliability
- Perfectly balanced reducing vibration
